Last year, Jenna Gillies ’03 returned to CDS as a guest speaker for the Grade 10 Careers class. As a partner at Ewing Morris & Co., a private equity firm in Toronto with over $250 million in assets, Jenna was able to share many insights from her career. She also shared some stories about how she discovered her path.
“I remember being in Grade 11 and talking to Leanne Sharpe ’03 after her Accounting class took a trip to the Toronto Stock Exchange,” recalls Jenna. “One of the presenters said that the reason she got her job was that she had attended the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western. That’s when I knew what I wanted to do.”
